Cruz gave birth at Madrid’s Ruber International hospital just to the north of the city, where Spain’s Crown Princess Letizia gave birth to her two daughters, a hospital source said.

“The couple checked in yesterday and she gave birth yesterday,” the source told AFP without specifying the gender of the baby.

Cruz gave birth to a girl “just a few hours” after Kate Middleton welcomed her little boy in St Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday, according to the online edition of Spanish celebrity magazine Hola!.

The new arrival is the couple’s second child. They are already parents to two-year-old son Leonardo, who was born at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles in 2011.

Cruz and Bardem met when they starred opposite each other in Bigas Luna‘s film Jamon, Jamon back in 1992.

In 2008, they were back together on the silver screen in Woody Allen‘s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, for which Cruz won an Academy Award as best supporting actress.

Bardem, nominated for an Oscar in Before Night Falls, won an Academy Award in 2007 for his role in No Country for Old Men.

The couple married in July 2010 at a ceremony in the Bahamas after keeping their romance quiet for years.

Both Bardem and Cruz star in Ridley Scott‘s The Counselor, a high-profile autumn release written by Scott and also featuring Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Michael Fassbender.

Cruz Confirms Her Second Pregnancy…

Cruz’s publicist says the To Rome with Love actress was “extremely happy and very excited” about the baby news. But Giner refused to give further details about the pregnancy, including the due date.

Cruz and Bardem are already the proud parents to 2-year-old Leonardo.

The power couple began dating after meeting on the set of Woody Allen‘s 2007 movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona, the film that earned Cruz an Oscar. They wed in July 2010 at ceremony at a friend’s home in the Bahamas. Six months later, in January 2011, Leonardo was born at Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Hospital.

Cruz shared her story with the press about being a mother, “From the first second, you feel so much love.” She added, “It is a revolutionary experience. That’s the best way I can describe it. It transforms you completely, in a second. Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment, when you see that face, you are transformed forever.”
